Is this some kind of joke? Firstly, we have an (ex) economy minister in charge of a whole country who can't even manage his own home economics? Second, I'm pretty sure Carranza's salary is a touch above the Peru national average and there are plenty plenty Peruvians who, on reading Del Castillo's comments this morning, will suddenly realize what kind of two-tier society they're living in.
What total bullshit. This is just another example of the lather-rinse-repeat cycle of economists who try and fail to be patriotic. Some private studio or public company has obviously offered him a juicy salary and half the hours and none of that press conference stuff. More money and less responsibility.... the Amerikan dream. This lilly-livered, self serving greed is then presented to us in a "family reasons" package. Public service? Dude, this is capitalism...don't get all soft on me.
So who's next? Jungle drums say it's a guy named Valdivieso, a fat, neolib economist with the personality of a kilo of rice who's been doing his thing at the IMF for a while, will be the next in line. Sadly, his greatest claim to fame in Peru is being the son of somebody famous, namely an ex-goalkeeper in local team Alianza Lima.
Pay peanuts, (you know the rest)
